I'm not going to debate the call on monk last night but just to be clear from the rule, sliding is allowed as long as you don't make contact with another player. Does this just mean body??
From the rules, "If a player slides towards the ball without making contact with another player, the play will continue and no penalty will be given."
I just want the rule to be clear as a captain and a ref.

It happened to me when strum slide to make a play and ended up sliding threw and into my leg not serious but the rule is you can not make contact with a player if you slide
Unfortunately both refs missed it and I didn’t get the call

The intent of the rule was for safety reasons so to discourage sliding toward a player from the front, side or from behind – To clarify if a player slides and makes contact with another player it’s a penalty. A penalty should be called in both extreme cases were the player may be taken down (this could result in a 5 min or a game ref to determine) if minor contact is made it will result in 2 min minor penalty.
The exception is if a player slides to block a shot away from any players and no contact is made this will not be called a penalty. Dropping straight down to block a shot is not considered sliding and the sliding rule will not apply.
Alex’s to answer your question directly if you slide toward a player and make contact him with either your body or your stick it is a 2 min penalty under this rule.
The initial rule stated “any sliding” was a 2 min penalty but it was revised so players could block shots without being called for the sliding rule. Again the rules intent is to prevent players from sliding to make a defensive play on a player with possession of the ball.

I did not know that sliding was a penalty I've never seen it called.
